K&A Grand Slam

Completed the K&A Grand Slam today. Perch, Pike and Ruffe. Biggest Perch went 37cm.

41cm 3lb 2oz Perch

3lb 2oz Canal Perch

Over the moon! Certainly the longest Perch I've had out the Kennet & Avon Canal. 41cm to the fork. 3lb 2oz. In beautiful condition. Where has she been hiding all this time?!

Lure was the HTO Flail. This time in orange. An active decision on colour after seeing how well Dan did on worm imitations the week before.

4 Species at Hungerford Town

Bream on Reins Lure

Weird couple of hours down Hungerford Town today. Managed four species on unscented plastics including two Bream, a Ruffe and a Gudgeon, which is only my second ever.

Perching with George Cunningham

George's First Perch

Without doubt, George Cunningham has had a huge influence on the state of light lure fishing here in the UK. George's homegrown HTO brand has made it possible for thousands of people to try out LRF and ultralight fishing, without breaking the bank, discovering the addictive fun of these methods. By all accounts, the HTO Rockfish UL remains one of the best selling spinning rods of all time. So, when my threat of taking George Perch fishing on the Kennet & Avon finally looked like a goer last week, we were both really looking forward to it. Read more
